Canucks Army Podcast Episode 6

Hey everybody!

Here’s your Tuesday edition of the Canucks Army podcast! Our guest in this episode was the inimitable Cam Charron, and we discussed a wide variety of topics – some of them requested by you, the listener!

We talked about the potential of Chris Tanev playing in the top four, we talked about the shelf-life of the Vancouver Canucks core, and we discussed Kesler’s future output (I went on and on about my theory that Ryan Kesler’s career may end up being very similar to Chris Drury’s).

As always you can stream the podcast from this post

Cheers.

  • Cam’s point Malcolm is that Kesler joins some pretty elite company if he can repeat his goal scoring output from last season.

    The percentages are against him – even if he shoots 20% on the PP and hits 15 PP tallies again – he’ll be hard pressed to score forty goals. Say he takes 130 shots with 65 misses, and regresses to his average total shooting percentage at even-strength (8.5%) from the last three years – that’s only 16-17 goals for a total of ~30. Nothing wrong with being a dominant two-way player and thirty goal scorer…

  • I think you missed one of the most significant pillars. Alex Burrows. His contract @ 2 million, and the ability to rely on him on the top line and contributing in the ways he does makes him per dollar our most valuable player on our team and why our window is two years.

  • Addendum on the Kesler note:

    Here are the five most-recent players who have broken 40 goals in both their 26th and 27th years:

    Vincent Lecavalier
    Dany Heatley
    Jaromir Jagr
    Teemu Selanne
    John LeClair

    Suffice to say, let’s not get our hopes up over Kesler. We’re definitely looking at regression, and may only crack 30.
